SF Safeway Grocer's Strikes Looms -- And We So Don't Care

Face it, kiddies. Unions are dead. We needed them when society put you to work at age 4, but in 2007, unions just coddle incompetent bureaucrats, drive up prices, and make Chinese-made goods look a lot more profitable. That is why we are sorta non-plussed about this latest grocer's strike. From the Ex:

"The union representing employees at Northern California’s largest supermarket chain, Safeway, is threatening to strike as early as next week ... employees would still be working at checkout lines but shelves and deli counters may go bare."

Sooo, big deal. Basically our diets will shift to consist of even less factory-farmed Safewaste, and even more El Farolito, El Metate, Hamano Sushi, Eric's Chinese, and Trader Joe's red wine. No biggie, right?

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
